Westchester County Legislator James Maisano, R-New-Rochelle, will become the minority leader of the Board of Legislators in the new year, the GOP caucus announced this week.
Maisano, a lawyer, represents about half of New Rochelle and all of Pelham. He’ll begin his seventh two year term on the board on Friday.
“The Republican caucus is committed to reforming county government by promoting initiatives to reduce spending, lower taxes and consolidate operations, “ he said in a statement. “We look forward to working in a bipartisan way to improve the quality of life in Westchester.”
There are four GOP members on the 17-member board. Maisano takes over from George Oros, who is becoming Chief of Staff to new county executive Rob Astorino.
